RESOLUTION NO. 630 Re: Vineet Vyas on nomination for East Coast Music Award

MS. LENORE ZANN: Mr. Speaker, I hereby give notice that on a future day I shall move the adoption of the following resolution:

Whereas Vineet Vyas, a former resident of Truro, was introduced to Indian classical music at the age of five and has been playing the Northern Indian drums known as tablas on the music scene since 1986 when he debuted at the World Expo in Vancouver; and

Whereas Mr. Vyas studied intensively in India under the direction of tabla maestro, Kishtan Maharaj, developing his skill and mastery of the music; and

Whereas Vineet Vyas’ latest CD, The King of Dhamaar: A Tribute to Pandit Kishan Maharaj has been nominated for the East Coast Music Awards in the World Recording of the Year category;

Therefore be it resolved that the Nova Scotia Legislature congratulate Vineet Vyas on his nomination at the East Coast Music Awards and also for his dedication to the development of his music.

Mr. Speaker, I request waiver of notice and passage without debate.


MR. SPEAKER: There has been a request for waiver. Is it agreed? It is agreed. Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay. The motion is carried.
